Wind Publications is
pleased to announce the release of Moving Out, Finding Home by Bob
When Bob Fox was
nineteen and seeking independence he left his Brooklyn home on a Trailways
bus to California. Within a week his parents died in a resort hotel fire in
the Catskills. This is where Fox’s book Moving Out, Finding Home: Essays
on Identity, Place, Community and Class begins. The book is a series of
closely linked autobiographical essays which read much like a novel, or a
combination novel and social commentary. Fox gives the reader new insights
as he deftly discusses art, farming, music, race relations, devastating
illness, and the search for meaning.
Many may know Bob Fox as a musician, a guitarist and pianist who grew up
watching the blues musicians in Greenwich Village. He pays tribute to those
many influences on his most recent CD "Blues Makes Me Happy." But Fox is
equally accomplished and at ease with the written word.
Moving Out, Finding Home has received critical acclaim such as the
"I think that what I'm most fascinated by in Bob Fox's memoir is measuring
the similarities and differences in our lives: age, geography, calling. I

"The essays in Bob Fox's Moving Out, Finding Home are as rigorous
and as muscular as his native Brooklyn, as beautiful and as calm as his
adopted southeastern Ohio hills . . . " — Lee Martin, author of Turning
Bones and From Our House
"Moving Out, Finding Home is beautifully written. The essays are
individual pieces but Fox's storytelling gift unites them to make a powerful
story of his life-long journey to find his true home place in this world."
— Gurney Norman, author of the counter-culture classic, Devine Right's
Trip, first published serially in the Whole Earth Catalog.
